When Is “Morbius” Release In Cinemas?
“Morbius” arrives in cinemas on April 1st 2022
When Is “Morbius” Coming To Netflix?
Netflix and Sony Pictures Entertainment have a multiyear, exclusive first pay window licensing deal in the U.S. for theatrically released Sony feature films, beginning with their 2022 film slate, which includes “Uncharted” and “Morbius”.
This means that “Morbius” will be coming to Netflix in the United States after its theatrical run, which is usually about six months from the initial release, which would be October/November. Once “Morbius” arrives on Netflix in the US, it’ll stay there for the pay one window, which is around 18 months.
Internationally, Sony has different contracts, such as with HBO Max in Central Europe, so it’s currently unlikely that “Morbius” will arrive on Netflix.
When Is “Morbius Coming To Disney+?
Disney and Sony Pictures Entertainment have a multi-year content licensing agreement for U.S. streaming and TV rights to Sony Pictures’ new theatrical releases across Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution’s vast portfolio of platforms including its streaming services Disney+ and Hulu, as well as linear entertainment networks including ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX and National Geographic. The deal covers theatrical releases from 2022-2026 and begins for each film following its Pay 1 TV window (Netflix).
This means that once “Morbius” is removed from Netflix in the US after the Pay 1 window expires (18 months), Disney can add the film to Hulu and Disney+ in the United States. This is likely to be around 2 years after the theatrical release, so it’s likely to arrive on Disney+ in the US in mid-2024. And now that Disney+ in the US has parental controls for mature content, this film would fit perfectly in the Marvel section on Disney+.
Internationally, Sony doesn’t have a deal with Disney, so “Morbius” won’t be released on Disney+.
